talk affidavit war in afghanistan. mitt romney had words about the president's treatment of iraq. let's focus on the afghanistan question. it's the 11-year anniversary of the war, yesterday, i believe. mitt romney had an interesting romneyesque take on afghanistan saying he would pursue a real and successful transition to the afghan security forces by the end of 2014 and goes on to say outlining an exit date is pricely the misstep the president made. let's play that sound if we have it. >> in afghanistan, i will pursue a real and successful transition to afghan security forces by the end of 2014. president obama would have you believe anyone who disagrees with his decisions in afghanistan is arguing for endless war. but the route to war and to potential attacks at home is a politically timed retreat that abandons the afghan people to the same extremists who aravage their country. i will evaluate conditions on the ground and weigh the best advice of our military commanders. >> to me that sounds like mitt romney is suggesting he'll do exactly what the president is doing. do you hav

governor romney pays in his federal income tax. >> even when biden wasn't on his campaign talking points he was using his very own special brand of biden-ooez to tug the rug out from under paul ryan's feet. >> this is a bunch of stuff. look here's the deal -- >> what does that mean. >> we irish call it mularkey. >> the greatest hope for republicans was a gaffe but biden managed to take his weakness and redirect it towards governor romney. >> romney is a good man, he cares about 100% of americans in this country. with respect to that quote, i think the vice president very well knows that sometimes the words don't come out of your mouth the right way. >> i always say what i mean. and so does romney. >> this morning both sides are claiming victory and, indeed, everything may change in the next five days when president obama and governor romney take the stage again. but what biden did give is the president -- gave the president a path throwing his detractors off the scent and leading his best friend on the path towards victory. franklin, as the new guy at the table, i ask you first, did vice

romney talks about repealing health care reform that's women's costs are going up, i'm not spending on my family, these issues are interconnected for women and that's been the president from president obama and joe biden in the way that romney and ryan are trying to get around talking about it. >> i think also ryan was going out of his way to appear sort of moderate and not is logically extreme and then was asked about the abortion question and really like, you know, kind of had a nonanswer almost because he doesn't believe in a woman's right to choose and -- >> he doesn't even agree with romney. when he said in a romney administration here's what position would be. that's not his position. he's actually more extreme than governor romney. >> he was the one sponsoring amendments with -- >> legitimate rape, which i like biden got that in there too. >> that's a separate ding. >> ben, the math thing has always been a trick of late, the arithmetic has been tricky for ryan, i'm referring to interviews with brit hume and chris wallace where he didn't have enough time to explain the math an

something like this. >> yeah. >> and talking about women voters who romney needs and has made up ground with in recent days this i think is much more devastating in terms of showcasing just how back and forth and around the world he's been. >> absolutely. i think the romney campaign is counting on people only looking at the most recent sound bite being shown to them, primarily on local news where most people get their news and they're counting on people not going back and checking and they're counting on a rigorous media fact check on it that he can get away with marketing this version of himself to current voters. mitt romney as republicans on the right believe, is just going to be the hand that holds the pen that signs conservative legislation. so there's no reason to believe that as president, he wouldn't simply sign because look, if he wins, that meant that republicans probably get the senate and probably hold the house. there is any reason to believe mitt romney would not follow through and sign anti-abortion legislation that came to his desk? is there any reason to believe

romney campaign, that's his nickname, mini mitt. you'll see him talk about the positions, not his positions before he was picked as the nominee, but mitt's position all night. that's the focus. you're not going to see a conversation paul ryan. >> phil, david says, conditions are told, this is veep candidates talk up your running mate, zing your opponent but avoid letting your career or policy ideas barack obama become the focus on the biggest life of the political life it's not about you. that said, when ryan was picked, those who didn't agree with pick said this guy has years of a congressional record, congressional approval rating is in the basement. there's a lot for joe biden to go at paul ryan on. >> and there's a lot for paul ryan to go at joe biden on. so there's four years of failed administration policy for ryan to litigate against president obama and joe biden. so i think if the question is, is there material for examination tonight in kentucky, absolutely there is. and do those issues that you raise, are they likely to come up? absolutely. but what amie said is absolute

things he's good at. >> let's talk about the new and improved and wetter mitt romney that we saw yesterday on stage. i will say, you know, president obama that moment when he's in the downpour his shirt sleeves are wet, wiping his face away, the dram my tus persona on the stage, romney in the downpour, swagger is no the a word we often use with mitt romney but it was the sort of boldest, most confident romney we've seen in a long time. >> which presidential candidate looks better wet. i'm glad to finally get to those independent voters who are like -- >> what is your answer to this. >> obama. >> by a mile. >> like a wet t-shirt contest. surprised it wasn't in slow mo, didn't do this thing with his hair. >> the collar alone, no, not good. >> i will say look, we've seen a change in mitt romney's general personage on the national stage and it was as far as mitt romney moments go, i thought he looked pretty strong out there. >> he did preside. but we're judging him on a weak curve of humanity, doesn't seem as robotic as had he used to be, but which is not actually human. >> the rain

terrorism, you know mitt romney hasn't talked about al qaeda or rolled out a plan counterterrorism plan in his previous speeches. he's called russia our number one foe. during the last campaign he made clear if the pakistanis were harboring terrorist his wouldn't make a decision to go into pakistan after them. so we're happy to engage the romney/ryan ticket in that conversation. >> from obama hed headquarters, ben "the thunder" labolt. >> i want to know if the thunder's coming tonight or the cannonball or what. >> you never know. ben, thank you for your time. >> we'll see. >> thank you for your time as always. the latest round of presidential polls shows a tightening race but can a contest be close and yet not comprehensive at the same time? we will try to decipher numbers ahead on "now." mom always got good nutrition to taste great. she was a picky eater. well, now i'm her dietitian, and last year, she wasn't eating so well. so i recommended boost complete nutritional drink to help her get the nutrition she was missing. and now she drinks it every day. well, it tastes great!
